Reuters Tally Says Global COVID-19 Death Toll Now Exceeds 4 Million

 

Reuters: Global COVID-19 death toll exceeds 4 million – Reuters tally 

(Reuters) - Coronavirus-related deaths worldwide passed a grim milestone of 4 million on Thursday, according to a Reuters tally, as many countries struggle to procure enough vaccines to inoculate their populations. 

While the number of new cases and deaths have abated in countries like the United States and Britain, several nations have vaccine shortages as the Delta variant becomes the dominant strain around the world. 

It took over a year for the COVID-19 death toll to hit 2 million, while the next 2 million were recorded in just 166 days, according to a Reuters analysis. 

The top five countries by total number of deaths – the United States, Brazil, India, Russia and Mexico – represent about 50% of all deaths in the world, while Peru, Hungary, Bosnia, the Czech Republic and Gibraltar have the highest death rates when adjusted for population.

Malaria is the biggest killer of all time. It has killed 1/2 of all of humanity that ever lived. The death toll of COVI is nothing compared to the death toll of malaria every year.

Westerners refuse effective treatment. Africans will make liberals pay for their white savior complex.
